I have been brewing and teaching about beer for many years, and I always remember fondly the first few batches of beer I made. Reading the instructions, rereading the instructions, calling the local homebrew shop and asking a question, and then reading the instructions again. Well, I finally got that first batch made and I thought it was probably the best homebrewed beer ever made. It was probably good, but not that good (my home brewing has certainly gotten better), but why ruin a good homebrew story!
